Time for another Lob chop

26 Jun

It has just recently come to my attention that my hair has grown A LOT in the last few weeks and it could almost be classified as mid-length at the moment… NOOOOO *screams and writhers like the Wicked Witch of the West doused in water*

Time to chop it back to my much beloved Lob (aka long bob) and add back in some gradual balayge ends. As it always goes… I jump on the internet for some hairspiration. What girl doesn’t? Below are a few photos of the look I will be aiming for when I go sit in the hairdresser’s chair.

I especially love Miroslava Duma’s hair in photos 1 and 2. What do you think Hautees? Which photo should I be taking to the hairdresser as hairspiration?

If I could look like anyone it would be Miroslava, don’t you agree? She’s a total fox!

The Hautees – 2012 People’s Choice Awards

12 Jan

Ahhh, nothing better than a good ol’ red carpet perve. Feast your eyes on my favourite picks from the 2012 People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet… or as I say the ‘hautest of the haute’.

Nina Dobrev from The Vampire Diaries in Elie Saab. Wow. No Words! This gal nails the red carpet look EVERY.YEAR. Who would-a thunk that this green colour would look so striking on Nina. And that hair… so shiny, so luscious, so long. I want this chick’s skin… yes like Silence of the Lambs style. Bahaha. So GREEN with envy…*wink wink*

Jennifer Morrison in Oscar De La Renta. I love this look – so elegant. I’m a huge fan of the bun, and that lipstick colour compliments the outfit so well. She looks radiant. LOVE.

I’m sorry but Kristen Bell just makes it to my list every time, mainly because she always gets it right and more so because I just love her SO DARN MUCH! Any fellow Veronica Mars fans out there? Here she wears Valentino. Doesn’t she just look amazing in red?

Miley Cyrus donned a delightful David Koma dress. Everything is ringing my bell in this image… the hair, the skin, the makeup, the dress, the shoes. Kudos to Miley for this stunningly simple but amazing red carpet look.

What do you think lovelies? Do you agree that these girls are looking hawt?! Who were your favourites?

girl crushing

29 Jul

I’m totally girl crushing on these lovely lasses lately. Everywhere I see them, they look immaculate, stylish and groomed to perfection! Emma Watson as the new Ambassador for Lancome, Rose Byrne hosting a Zimmerman party and Teresa Palmer at the premiere of I Am Number Four.

Phwoar! Australia breeds some pretty impressive beauties, don’t you think?

I’m hoping I can look even just 1/10th as good as Teresa when I slap on my new Nars Carthage lipstick. And that hair… GORGEOUS!

Tell me hauties, who have you been girl crushing on lately? Come on spill!!

Don’t keep them all to yourselves you greedy gumdrops.

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors

14 Jul

Finally! Rumours had been flying around, secret tweets were tweeted, and photos emerged that all pointed to the fact that the Kardashians were releasing a line of nail polishes in conjunction with OPI. And it’s true, Nicole by OPI and the Kardashian/Jenner family announce the launch of Kardashian Kolors, 14 new nail lacquer shades inspired by Kris Jenner and her five daughters—Kourtney, Kim, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

I am so obsessed with this family and will need to get my polished paws on these babies whatever way I can, BIBLE! (In Kardashian speak that means I swear to god). I have a feeling that they will only be available in the US and Canada (as we don’t usually get the Nicole by OPI collections here in Australia), so it might prove a little difficult for me… but I will try as hard as I can! How good would it be if it was released here in Oz?!

“We are so excited to work with everyone’s favorite TV family—the Kardashians—to share a diverse collection of fashion-forward shades,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Kardashian lacquers range from high-shine and sparkly hues to neutral taupe and pinkish coral.”

Each of the 14 shades, which have been co-designed by 27-year-old Khloe and 32-year-old Kourtney, have been named in honour of their other family members. And here are Khloe and Kourtney at the launch in New York on Monday, flaunting some of the kolors from the kollection – ‘ey ‘ey you see what I did there? 🙂

In true OPI style, all the names of the polishes are cute and quirky, and the girls have done a really good job at choosing the names. The 14 shades are called (in order of the top main image):

It’s All About the Glam – Shimmering-white glitz

Kim-pletely in Love – The pink of her dreams!

All Kendall-ed Up – Powder your nose and get some pink on those toes!

Wear Something Spar-Kylie – Glitter-ly the prettiest pink ever!

Sealed with a Kris – This klassy red is top-of-the-line!

Rainbow in the S-Kylie – Girls just wanna have…glitter in every color!

Disco Dolls -Glittery gold glam gone wild!

Kendall on the Katwalk – A head-turning blue-green with a “sparkling” personality!

Listen to your Momager! – If you don’t, you’ll never see this fabulous blue again!

Follow Me on Glitter – A glittery deep gray that always has something to say!

My Empire…My Rules – This take-charge taupe is always on-trend.

Khloé Had a Little Lam-Lam – A deep dark emerald worth falling for.

Hard Kourt Fashionista – This delicious deep brown is the chicest hue in town!

Kourt is Red-y for a Pedi! – This captivating coral looks “fab” on everyone!

Nicole by Opi Kardashian Kolors will be available Holiday 2011 for $7.99 US each ($11.00 CAD)

Online at nicolebyopi.com 

So what do you think of the colours?

Will you be trying to get your polished little paws on this collection? Or should I say kollection?

UPDATE: I came across the Saralli Designs website and found that she stocks the Nicole by OPI polishes! Yeyyyyy

neon dare

19 May

It’s blindingly beautiful, and even all the celebs are bang up for a bit of neon pink. Working on both pale and tanned skin, the neon fuchsia pink lip is a fun and flirty way to liven up your look. The joy of this trend is that there are no rules, you can still wear it with a dark smoky eye à la Gwen Stefani, or with just a slick of liquid eyeliner like Emma Stone.

Kelly Osbourne loves the new Candy Yum-Yum Matte lipstick (AU$36) from the M.A.C Quite Cute collection, and is seen sporting it on many occasions. Maggie Gyllenhaal took the neon pink trend to the red carpet at the 2010 Oscars by wearing Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Schiap (AU$58) and Emma Stone wore Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage (AU$54, from the new summer collection) at this year’s Met Ball.

My question to you is, do you love it or loathe it?

Would you dare to wear it?

The Hills are alive with the sound of Beauty

20 Apr

Wondering what those cute Cali crumpets from The Hills are up to now? Well with a cancelled reality TV show and a mediocre clothing line, it looks like Lauren Conrad (known as LC) has jumped ship into Beauty (applause). Lauren Conrad just announced that she’s getting into the beauty business! First, she will launch a hair and makeup online destination named The Beauty Department, a collaboration between Conrad, her makeup artist, Amy Nadine, and her hairstylist, Kristen Ess; and even hinting that she may eventually launch a line of cosmetics and hair products.

The site will be covering all kinds of beauty related stories from makeup and hair how-to’s, nail trends, current obsessions, skin issues, tricks of the trade and tools and most importantly how to achieve those enviable beach curls that Conrad rocks oh so well. Lauren Conrad herself will even dish out beauty advice via video tutorials on the site. The site is pretty darn cute (and so is she!).

But hang on a minute? Another ‘Hills’ hottie has already beat LC to the Beauty blog throne, the down-to-earth Lo (Lauren) Bosworth has had her health, relationship, beauty and lifestyle site – The Lo Down up for quite sometime!

Loey shares her Beauty secrets and tips to everyone (most bizarre being how to make an aspirin face mask?), as well as dishing out relationship, life and health and fitness advice, even answering questions readers send in.

Did you know about The Beauty Department? What about The Lo Down? Will you be reading any of these girl’s sites?

Wonder if Heidi will follow suit? Her career is failing (oh wait what career?!)

11 Apr

A not so exciting weekend… mainly involved getting stuff ready for the event next weekend (EEEEP) and clothes shopping. Went to a friend’s BBQ on saturday and spent Saturday night in reality TV heaven watching Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami season 2, finished that and got bored… so I decided to practice a smokey gold winged eyeliner look (without using tape… booyah!). So relieved I’ve got my outfit sorted for next weekend, found the most perfect black skirt at Dissh. So much so, I put the mustard colour of the same skirt on lay-by! Sunday arvo I randomly decided to sweep the garage, wash my car and clean the inside, then cleaned my bathroom and went for a 5km run with “rock”star (that’s my nickname for Rocky my doggie). LOVE starting the new week all clean and organised!

the ce’lob’rities

4 Mar

If you didn’t know, there’s a hot new hairstyle going ’round and it’s finding itself on the heads of more and more celebrities each day. It’s the flattering “Lob” (long-bob) and there is a new celebrity convert to the Lob – Vanessa Hudgens. Good ol’ Ness turned up to Elton John’s Oscars 2011 after party held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, California rocking a little less hair than usual. Vanessa follows in the recent footsteps of Jess Alba, Jen Aniston and my favourite ‘lob’ster, Olivia Palermo (perfect example of this seasons perfect hairstyle: straight lob with dessert coloured balayage) to chop to a lob. The neck skimming hairstyle isn’t too short that you’ll be crying into your pillow, wishing for your long hair back, and is still really manageable. I also love that you can add a little bit of texture to the style and still apply a balayage to the tips to give it a bit more oomph (perfect case in point is Liv P).


Now that you have your inspiration, but you might be looking for some beauty rules for the must-have Lob, then may I suggest you head over here and download the latest Primped/David Jones LookBook for 2011 which has an article on the lob and the rules you must follow before making the chop.

Or if you would rather it in magazine form, head into one of the below David Jones stores to pick up a copy.

Reb’l Fleur

18 Jan

Rihanna is about to launch her first signature perfume next month in the US. The fragrance named “Reb’l Fleur” is described as “a musky mix of vanilla, patchouli and amber”. Here is a look at Rihanna’s new fragrance.

The scent actually sounds like something I would wear. What do you think?

Will you be wanting to try this fragrance by Rihanna?

Get the look: Kim Kardashian

18 Jan

I don’t know about you, but I think Kim Kardashian always look amazeballs (seriously, she must spend 80% of her life in hair and makeup) and the (wo)man behind the mug is Kim’s talented MUA Joyce Bonelli.

Joyce shared her steps behind the lovely luminous look she did for Kim’s 30th Birthday party (well one of the many b’day parties).

Here’s the look:

And here are the steps:

STEP #1: Kim’s Skin

“It’s very important to keep up on your skincare regimen to keep it’s glamour & help to stay away from breakouts. On Kim I apply PerfectSkin, LaMer lifting serum, & PerfectSkin eye cream. To condition lips I use Keihl’s lip balm. *Don’t be lazy, this also goes for washing your face at night! Use makeup remover wipes if you are too tired.”

STEP #2: Primer

“I use Mister Mat Mattifying foundation primer by Givenchy.”

STEP #3: Foundation

“I like to keep Kim’s overall skin to appear matte so I use Sheer Matte by NARS. Blend into the skin with a foundation brush for a flawless touch.”

STEP #4: Undereyes

“I use Lift Concealor by Make Up For Ever.”

STEP #5: Set

“Finally I set Kim’s entire face with translucent powder by Laura Mercier. *Don’t get all cray cray & over do it, only dust your brush with a touch & then gently apply powder.”

STEP #6: Brows

“I tweezed them using Tweezerman tweezers. Then filled them in with Lingering brow pencil by M.A.C.”


“All over the lid I applied the golden shade of NARS Duo eyeshadow in Mediteranee. On the outer corners of the eyes, crease, & along the lower lash line apply Chopper eyeshadow by Urban Decay. On the inner rim of the (tear duct) & the brow bone I apply what I call the magic to the eyes, Lust Duster by benefit. I then lined her top inner rim with Eye Kohl in Smolder by M.A.C. Then to line the lower inside rim I used Costa Riche by M.A.C. To finish off her eye I curled her lashes using Shu Uemura eyelash curler. Then I coated her lashes with LOREAL Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara. *Yay it now comes in waterproof!”

STEP #8: Kim’s Cheeks

“To bronze & add warmth to her skin I used Dior Bronze Matte Sunshine in Amber Matte. On the hollow of her cheeks I applied Suntan Matte Bronzelights by Smashbox. *Using matte bronzers helps to stay away from a possible muddy effect. For blush I brushed onto the apples of the cheeks The Bronze Natural by Dolce & Gabbana.”

STEP #9: Kim’s Luminous Glow

“I applied Lust Dust by benefit right above the hollows ofher cheeks & bridge of her nose.”

STEP #10: Kim’s Lips

“First I lined her lips with Cremola Cremestick liner by M.A.C. Then I applied lipstick in Soft Nude by Revlon. Lastly to add a chic shine I applied 24K gloss by Lip Fusion. *Who needs injections when you can pump up the volume with just gloss!!”

Uhuh. Just gloss hey Joyce? Have you seen the pictures of Kim’s trout pout in this week’s Famous mag?
